International Visiting Scholars

The SOLES Global Center is pleased to welcome to campus international visiting scholars for varying short studies and semester-long programs.

If you have a PhD and are interested in becoming an international visiting scholar at SOLES, please identify a member of our faculty who shares your research interest and has indicated that they will be willing to be your host on campus. Once you have done so, please contact the Global Center at globalcenter@sandiego.edu or +1-619-260-5901.

Visiting international scholars carry out their research on our beautiful campus and in our resourceful library. They also typically hold office hours in our building, share their research with our faculty and students and make themselves available to serve as guest lecturers. This is not a paid position, but we offer the above mentioned support during the scholar’s stay and serve as their host for visa purposes. Join us!
